Treatment of muscle injuries

The RICE-principle (rest, ice, compression and elevation) is generally considered as being the best method to minimize swelling and relief pain within the first 24 to 48 hours. After first aid, therapy must be tailor made according to the severity and extent of the injury. A short period of immobilization after the trauma prevents excessive formation of scar tissue (which will have a deleterious effect on mobility and strength of the healed muscle) and prevents rerupture by allowing the scar tissue to gain sufficient strength to bear contraction forces. Immobilization should not be continued after the acute phase (first few days) to avoid the negative effects such as muscle atrophy, retarded strength recovery and excessive formation of connective tissue within the muscle.

Early mobilization already starts after a few days, if the acute phase has passed without further complications and recovery seems to be progressing. In comparison to immobilization, mobilization induces significant histological changes such as increased vascularisation of the injured area, better regeneration of muscle fibers and more parallel orientation. It has the additional advantage that the muscle will sooner gain its original strength.Increase vascularisation,pain management ,tender points treatment is done by electrotherapy i.e. hot therapy,interferential therapy,TENS,LASER.
The active treatment needs to be built up gradually from isometric exercises to isotonic exercises. Only if those exercises can be performed without pain, isokinetic training should be started.

No substitute of exercise for a healthy back

The key to preventing lower back injury and pain (LBP), whether work-related or not, is physical conditioning. "Getting into shape" involves the overall conditioning of the body and Aerobic exercise plus the exercising of the core muscles are both critical for developing healthy and pain-free backs.

Mobility and flexibility of the lumbar region seems to be another factor. However, that doesn't mean that strong and supple back muscles, if you have them, are a bad thing. Nevertheless, developing them by using exercises that are conventionally prescribed for a strong and flexible back sometimes inflicts injury. So, if neither strength nor lumbar flexibility guarantees a healthy back, then what does?

The biomechanics of the back suggest that muscle endurance is more protective than mere strength.

The way to achieve and maintain spinal stability is to:

- Exercise all these muscles in a special way - by sparing the back
"Sparing" means exercising with the spine in a line with no additional load.

The focus is on selecting the most appropriate types of exercises and the best way to conduct them to make you fitter without injuring yourself or having a back pain. Ideally you should have a set of exercises tailored to your individual objectives and ability. Because we are unable to satisfy every individual's needs, we can suggest only a rather generic set of exercises that we hope will suit the majority of working people.

Always consult with a doctor, medical professional or a best spine rehabilitation center in Gurgaon before beginning any type of exercise program.
